Pirates vs Reds live stream: what channel is the game on, how to watch via online live stream
ESPN+ will host Saturday’s game between the Pittsburgh Pirates and Cincinnati Reds with the first pitch scheduled for 12:35 p.m. ET at Great American Ball Park in Cincinnati, OH. The starting clash for Game 1 of today’s doubleheader between these two teams will feature Reds rookie Connor Overton and Pirates opening day starter JT Brubaker.
Brubaker will be looking to earn the first win for a Pirates starter this season; Pittsburgh’s rotation is 0-10 with a 5.55 ERA this year. The Bucs (10-14) have lost six of their last eight games. A bright spot recently is outfielder Bryan Reynolds, who had five hits in his last 14 at-bats.
The Reds (3-22) are bad. And they’re about to be historically bad. After splitting their first four games of the season, they have lost 21 of their last 22 games. Their team ERA (8.91) is three points worse than any other team in the league. They also have the lowest OPS among all offenses (.585).
